I love that this gel/pomade is alcohol free, and doesn't have a greasy feel to it. It also has a very pleasant smell. What I didn't like about it is that I felt that it didn't really serve its purpose. It slicked my edges down for all of one minute, and then they curled back up again- and this was before I stepped outside into the humid weather. Maybe it doesn't work too well on my post relaxer edges (I'm 3 months post). I even used the scarf method to make my edges stay down with the Edge Control, and it still didn't work. When I get a fresh relaxer, I'll use this and see what it does then, but right now, I'll just stick to slicking my edges down with my beloved IC Fantasia styling gel.
Have you tried ORS Olive Oil Edge Control?
